01:22 – England Imposes Compulsory Declaration Form
England’s residents who wish to travel abroad from March 8 will be obliged to fill a “Declaration to Travel” form otherwise, they will be prohibited from travelling, and even face a £200 fine.
Before travelling, England residents must download the form available at the UK’s government website check our blog post for the link
The form asks travellers to enter their personal details including their address, passport number, and destination, followed by their essential claim for travel.
Airline carriers are instructed to verify completion of the document either at the boarding
gate or check-in.
However, British authorities have stated that the stay-at-home rules remain therefore, it is illegal to travel to foreign countries without any significant reason such as work or education.
The UK’s Police will check the country’s ports in order to ensure that all passengers are following mandatory quarantine rules.
Persons seeking to travel abroad for unnecessary reasons will be urged to return to their homes and they risk receiving fines from £200 and up to £6,400.
02:38 – Preventive measures for International Travel
British officials up to this point have imposed many preventive measures while tightening their controls further in order to minimize the risk of virus transmission at the border by introducing pre-departure testing for all passengers arriving from abroad.
The UK’s government also requires all persons who travel back to Britain from countries highly affected by the virus to quarantine for ten days when entering the country.
However, in Scotland, Northern Ireland as well as in Wales, there are different restrictions
in place, but up to this point, there is no declaration for travel form requirements.
Still, travel to foreign countries is prohibited and considered illegal unless citizens have any compelling reason.
Passengers arriving from any other countries in the United Kingdom will be required to take two COVID-19 tests while following quarantine rules.
